So did you notice how much memory Scribus was using as it tried to make 
the 600dpi PDF ?

I';m just wondering if we can determine if it failed because the OS was 
unable to allocate() more memort, or because of some limit within Scribus ?

Another work around might be to split your work into two halves, but 
without knowing more about the problem, it's hard to know if that would
